The Stevens Model 416


Back in the day, Steves made target rimfire rifles that competed with Remington and Winchester. The Model 416 is one of those.

Like most of the vintage rimfire target rifles, this one is quality all the way. They just don’t make’em like that anymore. That’s a saying because its true.

I spent the day shooting this one to give it a good working over. Ammo used was a few different types of Eley match shot at 50 yards.

Yea yea, the bottom left target was used to zero on. The rest are five round groups shot at 50 yards. How much more accuracy can really ask for ? Vintage heavy barrel target .22 rimfires are a treasure and should be given a serious look if you run across a deal on them.
